Hello cruisers:
We recently completed a trip from Tampa to Puerto Montt (Chile)
and then crossing the Panama Canal had to enter the ports of Ecuador and Peru, with many surprises and bad experiences.
Perhaps it is appropriate to address this issue with those who care
Greetings and good wind

Hola,
Welcome. I've read some stories about cruising Ecuador/Peru that were not entirely positive. It would be interesting to hear your experiences along this coast.
That is quite a trip from Tampa to Puerto Montt.
Bienvenidos.

We was saiingl a Jeanneau 38 from Tampa to Puerto Montt (Chile) during
4 months without problems until we got to Salinas in Ecuador, authorities charged $ 800 just to enter the port, non the costs in the marina, then in Peru was the same, $ 750 for two days in Callao.( La Punta) Talara is very dangeruos.
The private marinas are good and low costs, but the official fees and other charges are excessive in this two countries.
Not the case in Chile, where the charges are low and the marinas are the best in SA.

CapPolux,

That is consistent with what I have read about Ecuador and Peru. The port entrance fees are outrageous for cruisers.
Considering that the Bahamas entry fee is a one time $150 (boats < 35') and good for a month or two.

yes, really there are nothing to see there, the route is:
Panama-Galapagos-Easter Island-Coast of Chile.
The best to entrance in Chile from the north is Arica or Antofagasta.
But, if the Cap. is a good sailor, I think will be sail directly to Canal de Chacao, in Puerto Montt.
The Colombian coast is not necessary to go.
Juan Fernandez ( Robinson Crusoe) coluld be a good stop grom Easter Island.
The best season to sail is sept from the north and mar from the south.
